Beltane is an ideal time for spells and rituals designed to bring love and creativity into your life. My Wheel of the Year guide has a simple spell and meditation designed to do just that. You will need one red candle, one green candle, almond or festival oil and jasmine incense. During ritual, you will make a talisman to channel love and creative energy and to remind you daily of your intent.
You may already have a special Beltane ceremony, or you may want to create your own. The following information will be helpful.
